So here’s why after reading the following, you’ll never feel the same way about a banana again.
Bananas contain three natural sugars. Those are fructose, sucrose and glucose. There’s also a little bit of fiber in there. It is scientifically proven that a banana will give you an instant boost of energy. Two bananas are enough for a hard work out lasting 90 minutes. This is also proven. That’s why Andy Murray always eats a banana on the court. But’s it’s not just energy that bananas give us, bananas help us overcome a bunch of illness and conditions. Here’s a list of them below:
A recent survey shows that people suffering from depression feel a lot better after eating a banana. The main reason for this is because a banana contains tryptophan – a protein which the body converts into serotonin. Obviously as we all know, serotonin makes us relax, improves our mode and generally makes us happier. So forget anti-depressants! Just have a banana. The vitamin b6 which lives in the banana regulates blood glucose levels – which obviously also affects your mood.
Bananas contain a real high level of iron so for anaemics a banana is the thing to do. Helps with blood pressure too as the tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium but also low in salt. The US Food and Drug Administration will back this up.
We all get constipated from time to time and the special fibers in the bana help us resore our normal bowel action. No more laxatives!
The natural antacid effect of bananas will help you overcome your suffering with heartburn.
A banana between meals will regular the blood sugar levels and allow pregnant women to avoid morning sickness.
Don’t reach for the Thai balm just yet! Rub some banana skin on you and you will see how much it will help the swelling and irritation.
The vitamin B found in the banana will help calm the nervous system. For people who work and are overweight, research shows that bananas are great comfort foods (instead of the usual chocolate and chips). People who work in stressfull jobs are more likely ot be obese and to avoid panic-induced cravings we ought to also control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours.
Bananas help with intestinal disorders because of the texture and smoothness. It neutralises over-acidity and gets rid of irritation on the lining of the stomach.
Cultures such as those in Thailand see the banana as a cooling fruit which lowers both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers.
So basically the banana is a real natural remedy for many problems. It has four times the protein of an apple, TWICE the carbohydrates, THREE times the phosphorus and five times the Vitamin A and iron. It’s super rich in potassium and is one of the best food for value around! ALSO BANANAS WEAR PAJAMAS!
